A Straightforward portrait

Tuesday, July 17, 2007 Concept/Objective:

Assignment ConstructWe were to capture a portrait of a subject in his office for a small magazine article. It wasn’t a leading off image, but rather something for further on in the article.


Not knowing what to expect, we arrived with our larger kit of lights. We really had little to work with, as the office was small and non-desript, to say the least.


We played around with different lighting, and angles. Without some color in the image, it was just falling flat. So, I tried throwing a color cast on the background, and that gave it some dimension and “flair”, of you will. Assignment ConstructAssignment ConstructAssignment ConstructAssignment Construct


Assignment ConstructWe did not deliver the non-colored background images, they were just too boring. Instead, we delivered a series of images of our subject using out online service.

Final Analysis:

Assignment ConstructNot every image or office environment is going to be some amazing space. This was a functional office, and we needed to make the most of it and enhance the visuals so that people would want to look at the subject of the photos.
